NEW YORK, Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Morgans Hotel Group announces the opening of its newest international property, Delano Marrakech.

In partnership with Moroccan entrepreneur Ahmed Bennani's Hivernage Collection and Marbella Club (MC) Hotel Group, the 71-room boutique hotel is the ultimate haven of discovery and pleasure. Boasting four culinary destinations, a world-class spa, three pools, luxury boutiques and a dynamic nightlife venue, Delano Marrakech is a self-contained luxury resort in the heart of one of the world's most magical destinations. Located in the center of the Hivernage District, Delano Marrakech is Morgans Hotel Group's second global outpost of its signature luxury brand.

Designed by the acclaimed Jacques Garcia in collaboration with Morgans Hotel Group's design team, the hotel's opulent interior blends precious marbles with sumptuous velvet and other rare textiles, creating an intimate atmosphere with a modern edge. A breathtaking central rotunda commands the lobby space, with bold white columns soaring overhead.  The unique ceiling made of hand-carved wood, gives way to an airy skylight that drenches the lobby with light.

The 71 guest rooms, comprised of 27 luxurious suites and 44 stately guest rooms, feature king sized beds with Delano's signature crisp white linens, headboards painted by renowned local artist Noureddine Daifallah, and traditional Moroccan lighting. iPads will be available in every room, allowing guests to order room service or browse hotel amenities at the touch of a screen. Bathrooms exclusively feature MALIN+GOETZ signature bath products including Bergamot Body Wash, Vitamin b5 Body Moisturize and Rum Bar Soap.

Delano Marrakech takes guests on a culinary journey around the globe, presenting fine dining options fit for every palate. At Pomiroeu, Michelin-starred Executive Chef Giancarlo Morelli transports his celebrated Northern Italian cuisine to Morocco, in an elegant space on the hotel's lobby level. Pomiroeu's rotating seasonal menu, featuring Morelli's signature risottos, will include specialty cheeses and meats imported from Italy, as well as local spices and flavors that intoxicate and delight. The 98-seat restaurant painted in lush reds, features a salon wall of gold-leafed artwork and a spacious outdoor terrace where guests can dine al fresco for an open-air culinary experience. For a more casual dining experience, Galerie provides an international cafe menu, set beneath the hotel's soaring rotunda, which is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as through room service.

Presiding over the hotel's upper deck, Namazake presents an upscale eastern dining offering for Delano's discerning guests. The Japanese Sake and Sashimi concept from MC Hotel Group unfolds onto the hotel's timber-clad rooftop deck. At Namazake, head chefs Senzai Renee and Chef Elquin have created an inspired menu of Japanese delights, ranging from traditional sushi and sashimi to Japanese barbecue and inventive Tempura dishes. Modeled after Namazake's celebrated outpost in Marbella, Spain, the restaurant features signature colors of black, white and claret-reds, dark woods and luxurious stone finishes, while incorporating Asian-inspired accents including Buddha statuettes.

Surrounding the Namazake space sits Sky Lounge, Delano Marrakech's outdoor rooftop venue, boasting spectacular 360-degree views of the Red City, the bustling Medina, Agdal Gardens, imperial ramparts and Atlas Mountains. Guests can order from the Namazake menu or indulge in a Sky Lounge specialty cocktail while taking in panoramic views of the city of Marrakech.  In the evening, Sky Lounge comes alive under the stars as an alluring nightlife venue featuring music and world-class mixology.
